Osea Island

For the ultimate party and/or getaway, time your arrival with the 4 hour window that accesses the causeway to the Essex retreat that is Osea Island. Dotted with the cutest beach cottages catering from 2 – 22 you can either take your mates or the kids but expect a ‘lively’ time full of beach walks, boating, kayaking, cycling, fishing, tennis…

With four and a half miles of beaches and a traffic ban across the island it’s no wonder that those in the know are flocking here. The beach cottages sleep up to 4 where you’re welcomed with four-poster beds, roll-top baths and wood-burning stoves. It’s the seaside house you’ve always dreamt of feeling at home with your own fully-stocked kitchen to settle into island life. Stock up on the mainland but all essentials can be bought on the tiny local shop and there’s always a friendly neighbour to borrow the sugar from.

Of course there’s a swimming pool if the lure of the beach wanes but it’s their open arms to children and even dogs that mean it’s a great option for everyone.
